TechnoBuffalo has posted a video comparison of the Siri and Google Search voice assistants.

Siri is how Apple persuades consumers to buy the iPhone 4S, and in iOS 6, the voice assistant promises to get a whole lot better. But before the new and improved Siri arrives, Google is unleashing an upgrade to its search that, well, blows Apple's tech right out of the water. Built from the ground up in the new Android Jelly Bean update, the new search engine accepts and answers questions with aplomb. When we first booted it up and gave it a go, it seriously blew us away with how quick it returned results, and the technology's voice is much more fluid than Siri's robotic pipes. We pitted the two against each other to see just how great Google's enhanced search is, and why Apple's new Siri may already be behind before she even arrives.

this review makes no sense, all he is doing is testing the server's speed and the phones processing speed in my opinion, not the quality of the assistant. how many iphones have siri queries occurring vs google handling jellybean requests? as a personal assistant i actually need it to complete operations such as setting up an appointment by voice. when he asked for a reminder to be setup the android phone just opened up an app and requiring you to fill in fields. i definitely have to hand it to google for the image search though. i really hate that siri asks you if you want to search the web when you specifically request for a search. this reviewer is obviously biased... very disappointing, i hope to see a fair review by someone soon. he barely touches on the concept of assistance like sending sms, emailing, reserving a table at a restaurant, and such.

The appearance is better with Siri! It's a phone not a human you Twirp so I think siri sounds better a little robotic, and what the f is a .5 second difference! I swear y'all have no lives posting this

Are you dating/banging your phone or using it for its functionality?

show iPhone nutters a clear video demonstrating a better piece of software and they still find any excuse possible to defend their iPhone, they can't even bare to at least say something like "yes but Siri will be better in the long run" or "maybe they have better voice search but the iPhone is still leaps and bounds of android", which of course isn't true but it's still less pathetic then the tripe some people here come out with
